I put one of the new rear coal bunkers that Roundhouse offers on my factory built Billy, that also really makes the engine look more complete as a tank engine. The open cab back really needs either the bunker or the tender.
How do you coal fire the engine with a bunker blocking the firebox door?

The bunker is on my gas fired Billy, Elk has the tender and the typical open cab back that comes on the Billy. Roundhouse offers a coal bunker for the rear of the cab that fits the Billy, Katie and Lady Anne. I put one on my BIlly.

Would it possible to get a picture of the grate and bar and and spacing dimensions ?
I am yet to continue my steam tests when the weather permits .
